A green option for your group's conferences, custom retreats, Single-Day or multi-day programs, and events
In 2020, The Ecology School is excited to open our campus at River Bend Farm as a place for groups to live, learn, and grow together. Bring your group to our riverfront farm campus to experience community living, eat farm-fresh foods, and explore rural, coastal Maine as you create meaningful retreats, conferences, multi-day events, and overnight programs.
A group's experience at River Bend Farm is completely customizable, created according to your needs. Our expert educational and programming guides are available to partner with your group to create a one-of-a-kind experience or we are happy to provide the idyllic setting for your prearranged program.
Available now! Currently, our 1794 farmhouse is available to rent for group programs, workshops, professional development, and events. The historic character and charm of our farmhouse will create a comfortable atmosphere for participants, with open access to 105-acres of fields, forests, riverfront, and 3.5 miles of nature trails.
Opening Fall 2020! Our unique dormitory and dining commons, built according to the rigorous standards of the Living Building Challenge, will promote sustainable actions in our everyday routines and demonstrate conservation-mindfulness in community living practices. In every moment spent at River Bend Farm, your group will experience our superior hospitality and demonstrated dedication to finding a "green" home away from home.
Please note River Bend Farm is available for multi-day rental only and we kindly ask that all groups utilize our on-site lodging and food service to respect the valued mission of our organization.
For information or details regarding scheduling, lodging, food, the site, and more, please connect with Meg Edstrom Jones, our Director of Educational Partnerships.
